Drabble: Focus Group

Focus Group

“First of all, thank you all for participating today.”

“We didn’t have a choice, you kidnapped us!”

At a nod, three burly henchmen took the offending gentleman by the collar and dragged him from the room. There was one scream, then silence.

“As I was saying, audience feedback is vital to the modern supervillain.

“On to item one. Of the names on List A, which is most intimidating?”

The hostages made their selections, with “Dr. Calamity” leading, with only one vote for “Major Fear” bucking consensus.

“Good. Next.” Henchment handed swatches of fabric around the tables. “Time to talk costume.”
